Description
For the third time in succession, Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) and the Frankfurt Book Fair are asking again for entries to be submitted for the DAM Architectural Book Award 2011. All art and architectural book publishers worldwide that bring out books and exhibition catalogues on cities, urban planning, architecture and architectural photography are invited to do so. A varying jury comprising DAM internal jurors as well as external experts will judge the submissions according to design, concept, quality in terms of material and finishing, level of innovation and timeliness. Even in this era of growing competition through new media and communication methods, books on architecture still remain the basic architectural medium. Identifying the best architectural books published in the current year by way of this competition and presenting them to architecture enthusiasts is thus a fundamental task of the 2011 DAM Architectural Book Award. As an honorary award it does not involve any award money. Encouraged by last year’s remarkable response of over 180 submissions from altogether 90 publishers worldwide the DAM Architectural Book Award 2011 will consciously open up to an international range of participants.
